EVUSHELD™ to be made available in future

EVUSHELD™ is an investigational medicine used in adults and adolescents as a pre-exposure measure designed to prevent COVID-19 disease. When enough supply is received, UT Health San Antonio will make available EVUSHELD™ for those not currently infected with COVID who

  • have moderate to severe immune compromise due to a medical condition or have received immunosuppressive medicines or treatments and may not mount an adequate immune response to COVID-19 vaccination; or
  • for whom vaccination with any available COVID vaccine is not recommended due to a severe adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized use of EVUSHELD™ under an Emergency Use Authorization (EAU). Expected delivery for EVUSHELD™ is unknown at this time.  We will update this message as further information on supply becomes available.
